Are you a bit of an adventurer, but like to enjoy a nice glass of wine as well? Then Harvest Tours has the perfect country escape for you! Our Indulge and Discover Tour covers all your bases, with opportunities to explore impressive caves and marvel at picturesque ocean views, while still stopping to sip premium wines and taste local, gourmet produce.
Is it time for a break from the boredom of everyday life? be taken on a journey of an unwavering focus on crafting site expressive wines. See how our stewards of the land and have implemented organic farming practices achieving optimal conditions for soil health and the quality of the grapes harvested. The winemaking team craft wines using minimal impact techniques combined with an acute attention to detail to achieve wine quality for all to appreciate.
A stop at Yahava Koffeeworks in Margaret River is the perfect start to the journey, as it’s sure to give you plenty of energy for the exciting day ahead. Yahava is a well-loved, local WA company that sources coffee beans from all around the globe. They offer a range of different coffees for you to try on their tasting benches, and an expert will walk you through the options while explaining how each cup is brewed - you can even watch the beans being freshly roasted right in front of you while you indulge in the sweeter side of coffee.
The highlight of our Margaret River discovery tour is definitely visiting Mammoth Cave - this is a large limestone cave 21km south of Margaret River township in southwestern Western Australia. It lies within the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park and is surrounded by marri and karri forest. Tours are self-guided with a audio-set.
For our premium tour, we stop at only the most highly regarded wineries in Margaret River, so of course we have to visit Vasse Felix - Margaret River’s founding wine estate. Vasse Felix was established in 1967, and their expert winemakers strive to produce wines that express the very best of the region. Margaret River’s isolation and maritime influence make it the perfect environment to create Vasse Felix’s specialties, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blends. On our tour, we will stop at Vasse Felix for some wine tastings, followed by a gourmet three-course lunch at their chefhatted restaurant. Just relax and take in the serenity of the surrounding vineyard setting, while tucking into their indulgent cuisine, and enjoying two glasses of included premium wine.
To make the early morning start a bit easier for you, we pick you up from your accommodation or nominated meeting point(small fee may apply depending on location).
